Description: This is what I wanted to do before I forgot to do it. And that was to submit a lesson on “how to draw a house step by step”. This is probably one of the first things every kid learns how to draw when given a handful of crayons and a few sheets of blank paper. The individuals that love drawing houses are called architects and what they do is draw schematics on different types of structures like cathedrals, mansions, executive buildings, and other great pieces done by great architects. Building houses can also be done by a bunch of carpenters and of course designers. My uncle is a carpenter and he has been building houses since he was sixteen and he is in his forties now. When someone wants to learn how to draw a house plan or drawing, they will usually look to drawing plans and instruction manuals. This is a very basic tutorial on a simple looking house that anybody at any artists skill level will be able to draw. I know that there are some of you out there that still may have trouble drawing a house even if it is just a square box. I have drawn a typical looking house with a walk way and even a nice oak tree. All the steps are drawn neatly and evenly and if you like you can use a ruler to make sure that your lines come out perfect. I will leave you to your drawing so I can upload more drawing fun. In the mean time, enjoy learning “how to draw a house step by step”.
